Subject: Renfrew always gets his man, and girl too!
Subject: much better than I thought it woukd be
good music and action
Subject: they dont always get their man!!
Hey, was that a bit of bribery accepted by the border guard at the beginning of the movie? That frozen trout for clearance across the border??
This movie is not a heavy or dramatic kind just some fun and great singing. Well worth the time spent.
By the way, the as any Canadian will tell you, the Mounties don't always get their man or sing as well!!hehehe But they try and they do a great musical ride! That too is worth a watch.
Subject: 5 star Canadian Mounties
Subject: The best baritone in movies
Subject: Before Dudley..
James Newill stars as Renfrew, the dashing figure in red, while not singing songs about Barbecue sauce (!!) he helps out a woman who gets inadvertently caught as bait while going to see her father, who unbeknownst to her, is being forced to work as a counterfeiter for them bad Amerikans. Got all that? Good. Actually, the plot is not too hard to follow, and builds up some suspense along the way, I wasnt really convinced with Renfrew as a gruff hero though.
Watch for the end, where Renfrew casually litters. lol
Subject: Very Enjoyable
I suspect this series is also the inspiration for Dudley Doright, from the Bullwinkle show.
While the general image quality of the print is very good, there are a number of drop-outs. The beginning and end seem to have frames missing, as are bits throughout the movie. Includeing an entire punch line to a joke.
Subject: First of a series
The plot is straightforward. Counterfeiters are forging American currency at a Canadian fishing lodge, stuffing the bills into rainbow trout, freezing the fish into large blocks of ice and then smuggling them across the border. But fear not for Sergeant Renfew is on the case! Not only is he strong, intelligent and courageous, but he has a great singing voice and makes the best BBQ sauce in the West. Watch and be amazed.
